New 21st Century treatments combine three proven modalities to clear body toxins and lower counts of harmful germs into a quick and affordable treatment session.
With the move of Forum Health Austin to our new, larger clinical facility in Rollingwood, West Austin, we are very pleased to announce that we now offer OxySauna treatments in our clinic to the public. OxySauna, a name coined by clinic founder, Wally Taylor MD, combines full spectrum infrared sauna with delivery of large amounts of oxygen simultaneously. Treatments that last up to 40 minutes are available in packages at the clinic.
The treatments combine sauna detox utilizing the Therasage Thera360 individual sauna with non-rebreathe oxygen technology to deliver oxygen to the tissues and cells. This sauna provides both near- and far-infrared wavelengths of light featuring Therasage’s proprietary exclusive Natural Earth Element Full Spectrum Infrared heating panels, with Tourmaline gemstones, to generate an abundance of negative ions, and bathe your body from every angle in gentle full spectrum Infrared frequencies and negative ions, with no exposure to harmful EMF’s.

Studies demonstrate that near-infrared photons interact with the cytochrome C receptors in your mitochondria to liberate nitric oxide which opens blood vessels and has been shown to kill bacteria and viruses (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3442839/). Far-infrared photons excite water molecules in the body to heat the body from the inside out. Studies demonstrate that elevating the core body temperature is useful to eliminate harmful germs and toxins and helps explain why sauna heat therapy has been used for centuries as a healing modality.
Combining the benefits of full-spectrum sauna with enhanced oxygen delivery may substantially increase the beneficial effects. Oxygen is necessary to effectively kill bad germs in white blood cells (http://mbio.asm.org/content/2/5/e00141-11.full). Many anaerobic bacteria cannot survive in an environment of increased oxygen (obligate anaerobes). Increased delivery of oxygen to tissues has been shown scientifically to increase ATP production by your mitochondria. This ATP is necessary to power your systems of immunity and detoxification.
Much of the science of the beneficial role of increased oxygen for the body was worked out by German physiologist, Manfred Von Ardenne, and published in his work Oxygen Multistep Therapy published by Thieme publishers. (https://www.thieme.com/books-main/complementary-medicine/product/1272-oxygen-multistep-therapy). This treatment modality has been recently popularized in the EWOT treatments (Exercise with Oxygen Treatments) that have become quite popular for training and longevity which are also available at the Forum Health Austin clinic facility.
From the LiveO2 website which is the leading manufacturer of EWOT systems in the United States (https://liveo2.com/ewot/)
“EWOT (exercise with oxygen therapy) is a method of breathing higher levels of oxygen during exercise in order to increase the amount of oxygen in your blood plasma. If done correctly EWOT can produce many desired effects in as little as 15 minutes a few times a week.
When you deliver and utilize more oxygen to your cells you:
- Increase the energetic status and efficiency of your entire body
- Experience improvement in tissue and organ function
- Stimulate your immune system, reducing the probability of future illness
- Reduce inflammation in the body, starting with the vascular system and joints
- Produce the energy of youth, creating short-term health and longevity.
- These benefits are just a few of the many positive results that come from EWOT.”
The full-spectrum sauna plays a similar role as the exercise in EWOT yet offers some distinct advantages over the exercise.
Treatments can be purchased singly or in packages. It is best to experience a series of treatments (two or three per week) over a period of weeks. For a limited time Forum Health Austin is offering 50% off your first treatment session. Call 512-800-5309 to schedule your OxySauna treatment session today.
